10 Things You Didn’t Know About Monsterland
By Michael Okon

  • 10. I came up with idea of Monsterland while watching an 80s & 90s movie marathon one weekend with my son.
  • 9. I called my brother immediately and told him I want to write a story about a theme park with zombies. He told me no, the theme park has to have werewolves, vampires AND zombies. I started beating out the story that night.
  • 8. It took me a little over three weeks to complete Monsterland.
  • 7. I self-published Monsterland in 2015 and it became a best-seller on Amazon.
  • 6. Within two years of self-publishing, I got a literary agent, an entertainment attorney, a film agent, a publicist, a two-book publishing deal, and film interest from a well-known producer.
  • 5. Monsterland went from being an indie book in 2015 to the number one pre-ordered book in Teen & Young Adult Zombie Fiction on Amazon in 2017.
  • 4. My brother designed the cover with an artist.
  • 3. There are two massive twists at the end of the book that most readers never see coming.
  • 2. Monsterland 2 is completed and comes out May 26, 2018.
  • 1. I have eight Monsterland books planned.
